COCKIE1LANDIE (March 2019): “Fantastic. What a perfect place to stay. Wonderfully warm welcome. Room we stayed in number 2, was. Spotless beautifully presented, amazingly thick white fluffy towels. Bathroom was also spotless, good size. Tea tray was full to bursting of tea coffee everything you need. The location is perfect 5 mins into town. Just a beautiful presented lovely place to stay. Breakfast is amazing. Didn't eat again until teatime was so full. Perfectly cooked. I can't fault anything and I would go as far to say there is nothing that can be improved its perfection. Can't wait to go again.”

Robert G (May 2019): “I had a really enjoyable stay at this sea front guest house. My hosts were very welcoming and helpful. My room was everything you would want from accommodation at this level. Large comfortable bed, and a superb bathroom with a wide shower unit.
Breakfasts were a delight, and you pre-ordered from an extensive menu. The location was just perfect with superb views over the sea, harbour and the Abbey ruins up on the hill. Everything was easy going, and I didn’t have any bother at all. I would seriously recommend this venue to anybody wishing to visit Whitby in the future

Inthebook (May 2019): “The Riviera is in a fantastic location for visiting all that Whitby has to offer. I had a lovely comfy single room which also provided a great view of the sea (not tucked away at the back like you often get with single rooms!). Zed and Emma were amazingly welcoming and all the staff friendly. The breakfasts were excellent, having been pre-ordered the evening before, with good speedy service too. A great find.

  1. Good Day: Is there a service/website which offers a seasonal comprehensive listing of Whitby B&Bs (single & double) with prices including VAT, and any available discounts offered for seniors/military veterans? Street addresses and availability of complimentary parking facilities/wi-fi/ etc. will also be helpful. (I am contemplating a Yuletide visit this year.)
